3 Tricks To Teach Your Tibetan Mastiff
3 Tricks To Teach Your Tibetan Mastiff

To teach your Tibetan Mastiff tricks, even simple ones, you should get some tasty treats, go to a secluded suitable place and manage to keep the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Tibetan Mastiff will start to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward snack, however be cautious not to get him excessively thrilled or he may lose concentration.

Teach your Tibetan Mastiff to give you his paw

To get your Tibetan Mastiff to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that do it again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Tibetan Mastiffs pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Tibetan Mastiff to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Tibetan Mastiff will think you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. Once he rises you state “high 5” and give your Tibetan Mastiff the snack. As soon as your Tibetan Mastiff has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be extremely easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Tibetan Mastiff to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Tibetan Mastiff to injure himself while doing the trick. Place your Tibetan Mastiff on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Tibetan Mastiff the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or beneath the hula hoop. If this occurs start once again. Your Tibetan Mastiff wants the snack and will soon learn that going around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Tibetan Mastiff. Have patience with your Tibetan Mastiff and most importantly, have fun!
